Nougat is coming to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge this month, at least if you’re Telstra customer with the Crowd Support website citing February 24th as the go date.
The update for Telstra users will begin pushing on that date, though will probably come out in a staggered release. While Telstra hasn’t listed the exact version of Nougat that will be heading out, they’ve advised the update will include Voice over Wi-Fi (WoWifi) and the January 1st security patch.
The Nougat update will arrive on Optus and Vodafone handsets, though Optus expects their update to arrive in early March. Vodafone hasn’t approved the update for their customers advising there were ‘Issues found during testing. Awaiting new software from Samsung’.
The update will bring all the Nougaty goodness including a revamped multi-window experience that’s supported now from platform level and a revamped notification UI. Samsung has also included a blue light filter to help you get to sleep at night after looking at your screen and you’ll see a lot more squircles in their revamed UI.
For Galaxy S7/S7 edge owners, this is a late, yet very welcome update so sit tight, it should be with you soon.
